I am a renowned world traveler. I have traveled as far as NJ. to race!. Considering the tolls, a round trip to OZ would probably be cheaper. :)

Interesting question what are the major differences between IRRA and what they run in California, what rules do they run in Tokyo.

Plenty.  For one tech means something in IRRA®  Depending on the class there are major and minor differences.  For one, allowed bodies are the main difference.

In Tokyo, we raced on the IRRA rules, allowing SCRRA Can-Am/F-1 cars without 100g minimum weight requirement as long as SCRRA approved bodies were used.

From this year, fully effective from February, we will just race IRRA cars with a few local rule exceptions such as allowing reversed Parma crowns(Bryan/Bruce style) until the end of this year.

Haruki,

do you find the IRRA cars with higher downforce Ti22 bodies run the same as the SCRRA cars with the lower downforce Ti22 bodies?

is one fastest than the other on your king track?

Mike,
With the same Retro Hawk performance, SCRRA ligher cars may have a chance to qualify better.
IRRA 100g + cars, however, are more forgiving than the above SCRRA cars thanks to the cars' own weight & higher down-force IRRA approved bodies, having a better chance to survive the race.

Our fastest time in the very fast Port Jeff King was with a 110 gram coupe with the Parma Lola GT geared 9/28.

Joe Chubby Salzman turned a 3.812.

So much for high downforce ey? Lol
